    Verne seems a little touched…

    Been with a lot of ‘carbon based life forms’ and none of them is quite like Verne!

    He’s more of a cartoon-based life form.

    Verne is a tortoise, not a turtle. No wonder he has low self-esteem – he doesn’t know who he is.

    Doesn’t Verne claim to be an amphibian? At least in the movie he does. But when you google turtle and amphibian, it does correct you that they are reptiles. Darn movie lied to me. I can never trust Hollywood again.

    Actually, isn’t there a line where the exterminator is trying to sniff Verne out, and he says, ‘Amphibian.’ Verne mutters, ‘Reptile.’

    I thought Vern was a tortoise. A turtle has to stay in water most of the time.

    Yes, in fact he corrects quite a few people on it, each time less patiently than the last.

    He should be a tortoise, which might be why he never said “turtle” in the movie. But he has self-identified as a turtle far too many times in comic history to deny it now. RJ even used to call him “Turtle Boy,” which means he’s either forgetful or dishonest now.

    Sometimes Verne needs no help in being miserable.

    @Nancy, @Night-Gaunt49, @Stephen Gilberg:
    Actually, if you check a dictionary or encyclopedia (and I did check a couple) you’ll find that officially the term turtle refers to both sea turtles and tortoises (plus terrapins). The distinction in which the term turtle is meant to exclude tortoises is common but only colloquial.
    Thus, Verne is indeed a tortoise, but he’s also a turtle, even though Crush and Squirt from Finding Nemo are turtles but not tortoises.
